The Churchill Park is bound to be one of the more heavily trafficked entrances to the Bloomingdale Trail. For one, the park has long been a popular spot for area canines and humans looking to play. Secondly, this gateway to the 606 is the closest to the heart of Wicker Park, one of the major culture hubs on the North Side. The neighborhood is loaded with rock venues, taco restaurants, nightclubs, boutiques and galleries. Oh, in case you're wondering, the park is not named for Winston Churchill, but rather the Churchill Cabinet Company, which owned the lot up until 1973.
